  • Sharif loyalists arrested as former PM returns to appeal conviction

Maryam Nawaz tweeted a video message from her father after they stopped in Abu Dhabi before they travel on to Lahore.

Sharif alleges the military is aiding a "judicial witchhunt" against him and his PML-N party.

Some have even called it the "ugliest face of Pakistani establishment" as the administration in the country said it would arrest Mr Sharif and his daughter Maryam mid-air, as soon as their plane enters Pakistani territory.

"I have to enlighten the Pakistani nation that I am doing this for them".

Speaking to media persons outside London's Harley Street Clinic, Hussain said that his mother opened her eyes for a few seconds only to close them again; however, she is in a better state now and doctors have adjusted the settings on the ventilator. Attendees chanted "Nawaz Sharif, We Love You!" as he concluded his speech.

NAB has acquired two helicopters-one at Lahore's Allama Iqbal International Airport and the other at the New Islamabad International Airport to transport the two convicts.

Nawaz Sharif, who was convicted in absentia last week of corruption and sentenced to 11 years in jail, commenced his journey to homeland from the city's Heathrow Airport late on Thursday.




All arrangements have been made to arrest the three-time Prime Minister and his daughter by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) team.

According to Geo News, Punjab Inspector General of Police Kaleem Imam has written to the Lahore deputy commissioner ordering the detention of seven PML-N leaders and one's house arrest for 30 days.

"Sharifs will come back on Friday", he said as he brushed aside the rumours of their flight cancellation. Another 100 PML-N workers have been placed under house arrest in Rajanpur.

More than 300 PML-N's workers have reportedly been rounded up from different parts of Lahore. "We will not accept the results of the July 25 polls if pre-poll rigging is not stopped", said Nawaz Sharif's brother Shahbaz Sharif. This permission was necessary as per the Election Commission of Pakistan's Code of Conduct for the elections.

Further, the PML-N president said the verdict in the Avenfield reference was "unjust".

Like in all Punjab jails, there is a separate section for female prisoners in Adiala Jail, But sources said that it would be hard for the jail authorities to ensure proper security measures for Maryam Nawaz there.
